    So the tutorial schools will no longer be able to issue visas to back packers (in the long term). No problem with that

    Anyone who still doesn't want to get legal, or anyone who doesn't want to play by the rules of the country we live in take note. Get legal or you will be crying later.

    After reading the fine print over on TV it would appear that some are abusing the system (harsh) or looking for loopholes to stay in the kingdom.

    i would have to think anyone who put as much effort into getting legal as some do into gaming the system wouldn't have much problem.
